Are you ready for a change? Are you tired of the career you are in but don’t know what’s next? This month is all about figuring it out.
The first step is to take time to think about who you are.
What do you like?
What things are important to you?
One way to help you figure these things out is to look at your calendar, your bank statements, and around your home. What is there?
What do you do regularly that makes you happy?
How do you spend your money?
What is essential to you in your life?
Don’t worry about your career right now just look at your life.
Look at your calendar to see all of the activities you have scheduled.
What are those activities?
What do they have in common?
Why do you do them?
My schedule includes a bunch of networking events. Why do I do them? I love people. I am building my business. And I love to see all that is happening in my business community.
I regularly attend 1Million Cups where different entrepreneurs from my community tell us about their solutions for problems that have affected them. I love to hear about their dreams they have made them a reality. My business community is made up of like-minded people that I support and that support me.
Take a moment to look deeper. Why do you do the things you do?
When I look deeper at my activities, I realize that I do it because I am an extrovert and very social. Being in a community and interacting with people is important to me.
I am also a life-long volunteer. I always get so much from volunteering. When I choose where I volunteer, I look at what I like and what I want to support. One place I volunteer regularly on Monday mornings is at a local food bank. I love starting my week socializing and being productive. It has been a great way to give back and get my week started with the right energy.
There are reasons behind our actions. When we look at what we do, we can see more about who we are and what motivates us. This also gives us insight on our likes and dislikes.
Knowing who you are will give you great insight into what you want in your life. Taking time to think about it is something we don’t do often enough. Most of us are just going through the motions of life. Our time gets filled quickly.
Are you filling your time with things you like? Take this week to look at your schedule and see what it tells you.
